The Swan (film) Quotes

Alec Guinness as Prince Albert

  • (Alec Guinness) "Your father used to call you his swan, so I am told. I think that's a good thing to remember. Think what it means to be a swan. To glide like a dream on the smooth surface of the lake, and never go to the shore. On dry land, where ordinary people walk, the swan is awkward, even ridiculous. When she waddles up the bank she painfully resembles a different kind of bird, n'est-ce-pas?"
  • (Alec Guinness) "I'm afraid so. And there she must stay, out on the lake; silent, white, majestic. Be a bird, but never fly; know one song but never sing it until the moment of death. And so it must be for you, Alexandra. Cool indifference to the staring crowds along the bank. And the song? Never."

Agnes Moorehead as Queen Maria Dominika

  • (Agnes Moorehead) "My dear I have a book. I shall send it to you, it's most comforting. It proves conclusively that Napoleon never existed."

  • (Jessie Royce Landis) "Oh, I can't remember."
  • (Estelle Winwood) "Yes, you can dear, "Elena the Iceberg.""

Brian Aherne as Father Carl Hyacinth

  • (Brian Aherne) "Your royal highness, you bring honor and glory to the house."
  • (Agnes Moorehead) "Also my pickled beets."
